Oh ! I -i. onld be a Poet!
Oh! I woud be a poei. 1
And immortalise my name;
My soul aspires for wisdom,
And never-dying fame.
There’s Homer, Virgil, Milton,
Three great poetic men;
Inspired with lofty sentiment,
Who would not be like them f
Oh 1 I would be a poet 1
With imagination strong.
And trace the mountain scenery,
In fancy’s wildest song.
Oh I I would make each lofty scene
Enchanting to the view;
I'd picture ovorv tree and shrub,
And flowers of brilliant hue.
Yes, I would be a poet!
And my thoughts should wander far,
I’d dwell awhile on transient things,
And every twinkling star.
Frum thence mv soul would upward soar.
To Heaven’s sublimest height;
And I would paint each radiant form,
I would write about my country
In a bright and glowing style,
For I would win the patriot’s heart,
And each approving smile.
And when my visionary soul
Is call’d to sleep in death ;
I would bless thee, 0 my country 1
Yes, with life’s latest breath.
Augusta, Ga. LOUISE.
The Things of Other Days.
The pleasaut things of other days,
How have they passed away!
How faintly to our straining gaze
Returns life’s sunny ray.
As dew before the morning sun,
Gems after gems depart,
Hope’s blossoms wither, one by one,
And fade upon the heart.
The voices sweet of other years,
Their tones so soft and low,
That whisper’d music in our ears,
Are silent, long ago.
The hearts that shed our own
The sunlight of their rays—
The eyes that fondly, warmly shone,
Are fled with other days.
The pleasant things of other days.
They turn them sadly back,
To trace, amid the mist haze,
Their bright and early track.
They see the light of sunny skirs,
They watch the opening flow’rs,
And seek amid their crimson dyes,
'The bloom of vanished hours.
‘They steal with soft and silent tread,
Thro’ memory's dim domain,
Like shadowy spirits of the dead,
Mourning for life again.
The past hath op’d its mighty tomb,
And o’er the present strays
Those spectral forms, but ah! their bloom
Has fled with other days.
The pleasant things of other days,
They never may return,
Illumin’d with those sunny rays,
That o’er youth brightly bnrn.
Tho’ all the morning glow is o’er,
StiU thro’ the twilight plays
A blessed gleam, like that of
Which lighted other days.
SCENE IN COURT.
Judge—Bring the prisoner into Court.
Pete—Here I is, bound to blaze, as
the spirits of turpentine said when it was
all a fire.
Judge—We will take a little of the
fire out of you. How do you live ?
Pete—I ain’t particular, as the oyster
said when they axed him if he’d be fried
Judge—We don’t want to hear what
the oyster said, or the turpentine either,
What do you follow ?
Pete—anything that comes in my
way, as the locomotive said when he run

Judge—Answer me; how do you get
your bread ?
Pete—Sometimes at the baker’s and—
sometimes I eat taters.
Judge—no more of that stupid inso
lence. How do you support yourself?
Pete—Sometimes on my legs and
sometimes on a cheer.
Judge—I order you now to answer
this question correctly: How do you
Pete—Pretty well,I thank you Judge.
How do you do ?

frill almost surely see him come to some
bad end. Perhaps he becomes an infidel,
and says, in his heart, ‘there is no God!

A Cheap Luxury.—As a weary tra
veler was wending bis way through the
mud,out in a far west region of country,he
he discovered ahead a young miden stand •
ing in the door of a small log hou-e. He
rode up in front of the house and asked
the maiden for a drink of water; hr
drank it, and she being the first woman
he had seen for several days, offered her
a “dime for a kiss.” The young maiden
accepted the offer, and received both
kiss and dime. The traveler was about
to resume his journey, but the maiden
never before having seen a dime, asked:
*‘What am I to do with the dime ?”
fou may use it in any way you wish,’

lied, TH give you back the
dime and take another kiss,’
A Compliment to the Ladies.
Waiter Savage Landor, now residing at
Bath, England, in his81st year, became
acquainted with Lady Blessington, at
Florence, 1835. In Madden’s Life and
correspondence of that lady, just pub
lished,we find several letters of Landor’s,
We make the following extract from one
of them. He writes to Lady B., “ Can
not you teach those about you to write
somewhat more purely ? I am very fasti
dious. Three days ago^l was obliged
to correct a friend of mine, a man of
fashion, who so far forgot the graces, to
say of a lady, ‘I have not often been in
her company.’ ‘ Say presencewe are
in the company of men, in the presence
of angels and of women.”— Transcript.
Fat Babies.—Who does not love a
fat baby ?—one of the real chubby kind
—so fat that it can hardly see out oi its
eyes? We frequently watch one of
these human dumplings for hours, and
are pleased to mark how good natured-
Iy they always take things. If they roll
over or fall down, it is all the same. If
th2 nurse steals their taffy, or the large
boy hooks the doll, little fatty rolls up
his eyes, looks curious, funny, and gen
erally laughs. It can’t cry! The near
est approach to it is a suppressed whim
per, which starts the tears and the grease
at the same time; and when lamenta
tions produce perspiration, the labor is
too serious to be long continued. How
docile is that fat baby ! Obesity is never
obstreperous. If there be any doubt
on this point we ask triumphantly—“was
Daniel Lambert ever known to be ac
cused of pugilistic propensities?—or
was a fat baby ever knowu to hit his mo
ther over the head with a poker!’ We
are decided advocates of fat babies, and
would like to see all the little sinners
as obese as coons in corn time. There
is one down in Florida, it is said, which
weighs forty-pounds, and it is not yet
ten months old!—What a luscious
lump it must be !

If you want your goods forwarded without
